Floral Shaker Card ~ Color Dare #493

 Friday means a new Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge! This week we have a simple challenge for you to try. How about the colors Flamingo, Nectarine and Lemonade? You must you all three colors in your project. The only other color you can use are Black, White and Brown or Grey Neutrals. No other colors are allowed. 

We reference Close To My Heart colors but you can use any brand you have as long as you can make a very close match. Kind of close doesn't count. Make any paper craft you like. When you're ready to join our challenge use the link in the post on our home page.

I decided to use this very pretty floral stamp set for the challenge. the image was stamped in Exclusive Inks Intense Black. I colored the flowers with our TriBlend Markers (Pale Pink Shades, Burnt Orange Blend, Citrus Blend, Ice Grey Blend, Brown Grey Blend) then added some Onyx Liquid Pearls for the centers and shimmer with a Clear Shimmer Brush.

At this point I decided to make this into a shaker card! Using the Circle Shaker Foam & Acetate and the die (seen below) to get the right sized circle for backing the shaker element all I needed to do was fill it with goodies! 

The filling is a combination of Bitty Beads and some pink Loose Gems. Doesn't it create a fun look you just can't help but shake? 

Extra Thin Foam Tape was used around the edges of the cardstock for support then it was applied to the card front. 

In the close-up you can better see the Liquid Pearls and the shimmer on the flowers. It really adds a nice look to the design.

  1. Such a pretty shaker card, Michelle. I like that you used grayscale for some of the card - quite an impact!

  2. This is a beautiful way to use this stamp - it’s a little overwhelming to colour all of it but the selected flowers are terrific. Love it!

  3. What a beautiful floral image and I love how you can duplicate it to get the full card front covered. Rather in awe of how you managed to colour it with such a limited palette too! X

  4. Beautiful card! I love how you colored the flowers and added the grey.

  5. Beautiful card, great coloring of the florals and love the glimmer in the flowers and the shaker.

  6. The addition of grey & shimmer really tone down this color palate. Pretty card.
